“JK Rowling's bestselling boy wizard is due for a makeover, with the launch of award-winning illustrator Jim Kay's fully-illustrated edition of Harry Potter in 2015.
The first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is slated for publication in September 2015, and publisher Bloomsbury will release each of the subsequent titles annually, re-creating the original publishing schedule which started in London in 1997, and so successfully developed readers as they, and Harry and friends, grew older together.
Illustrator Kay has reimagined Harry for a new generation of readers, in a style that nods to Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of the boy wizard in the film versions of the novels, and captures the character of Harry in the books.”
I think that if voldemort really wanted to kill harry potter the night the spell didn’t work on him he could’ve just picked him up and thrown him out a window given the fact that he was a one year old infant
- when you talk to people make sure you’re boldemort
- put on a sweatshirt or you’ll get coldemort
- make sure your laundry is foldemort
- all that glitters is not goldemort
- make jokes so people can loldemort
- throw out your bread before it gets moldemort
- live life to fullest even when you are oldemort
- don’t always do what you’re toldemort
"See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.
Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does."

honestly they could make a harry potter movie where all that happened was paint drying at hogwarts and I’d be excited
that’d be aWESOME WE COULD LEARN ABOUT MAGICAL PAINT LIKE DOES IT CHANGE COLOR OR PAINT ITSELF WHAT DO MAGICAL PAINTBRUSHES LOOK LIKE AND WE COULD SEE TONS OF CLOSE UP SHOTS OF HOGWARTS AND ALL IT’S HIDDEN HALLS
This is what 6 years without another book does to a person
daniel radcliffe looking more like harry potter than when he was harry potter
Six down, one more to go. Still need to keep an eye out for the elusive Half-Blood Prince.
i wonder what’s happening right now over at hogwarts
probably education since harry doesn’t go there anymore
